Divisibility Dash

Price: $1.99
Grade Recommendation: 3rd - 5th
Subject: Math
Specific Skill: Divisibility
Levels: 1
Players: 1
For iPad, iPod, or Both: Both

This app is developed by McGraw-Hill and is meant to compliment their Everyday Mathematics series.

This app tackles the skill of divisibility - or multiples of numbers. A divisor (up to 10) is given. Students then have to click on two number globes that will make a multiple of that divisor. For example, for a divisor of 2 they can click on 1 then 8 to make 18.

If students make a number that's not a multiple, the globes they used will lock. Once all the globes reach the top of the box, the game is over.

A comprehensive and helpful 'How to play' component is included.

Overall, I'm disappointed with McGraw-Hill's series of Everyday Mathematics-based apps. At this price point, I'd like to see the apps cover more than one particular skill or even cover one specific skill at multiple levels.
